state to city control requires that we maintain a separate harbor fund it's separate from the city's general fund. we've done analysis over time to look at property taxes and the cost of city services on port property. there's a bit of a gap. there's some sources that are urban leashed and don't generate tax precedes. and there's a cost of providing city services in that budget. and we try and track that over time. there's a general prim the harbors shouldn't subsidize or excuse me. the general fund shouldn't subsidize those services. the improvements to piers and seismic upgrades there in the capital fund also like along with historic properties listed on the national register. so as we are thinking about forming districts along the port property and the first proposed districts will likely be considered in 2014 so we're a ways away from requesting the styrofoam a districts. there would be a policy framework everybody sort of accepted there would be community oversight but those structures don't exist so we're going to propose local districts to answer those issues. there are some j

liability associated with future retiree health benefit costs for the city. of approximately $4.2 billion. this is a projection of many years, so, just for perspective, this bill will not come due all at once. but it is an accumulated projection of the future. that number is largely unchanged from the valuation that we produced two years prior. the reason it actually generally speaking in absence of change in the city's approach to this section, we expect the number to rise every two years. just given the interest in a simple world, interest on the liability with will drive the number up every year. it's actually good news comparatively that the $4.4 billion is largely unchanged versus the $4.4 billion two years prior. and the reason for that is that during that two-year period, medical inflation was less than expected. so, a host of changes during that two-year period and this really is an actuarial exercise without future assumptions. medical inflation during that two-year period was lower than expected and since that result the number hasn't grown since our last valuation. this

redevelopment. under a state law a city and county can form a subdivision to finance like new roads and parks. and the method of financing is exactly how it was in redevelopment law the infrastructure growth can capture new growth for periods up to 45 years. and the difference compared to redevelopment is property taxes are divided into a number of recipients the state gets a property tax dollar and the remaining $0.10 is divided up between the school district and community college district. and under an infrastructure financing district typically the only increment that can be captured is the $0.65. you can't capture the money it goes to schools or to the community college district. so it's property taxes can be used to a finance infrastructure through bonds or on a pay as you go basis. the ports are structured a little bit differently. redevelopment focused on providing affordable housing. by state law 20 percent of the increment must be spent on parks, bay assess and the remove of bay fill. as you know there's significant historic contamination along the port property. so in 2005 is

broadly how do you think san francisco compares and what are some of the other cities that are doing really well in terms of open data? >> i should be clear. when san francisco is third, we have a pact. i'll add to that actually. what's great in san francisco is there is not just going to be a chief data officer. there is also the office of civic innovation. jay's team, shannon's team. by having both of those units in place i think there is going to be a really powerful team. because you can't just open up the data. you have to do things like this, where you get the community together or you have people actually talking about it because the demand side, as we were talking about it, will be there because there is going to be someone there. there have to be people working with it who are getting out there. i think this is what this city is going to be really powerful. in terms of other cities doing as well, chicago is doing some really interesting stuff. scary cool stuff. they're taking 3 in 1 data, pothole request and crime report and matching it up with social media. they're getting
